Real Wedding: James + Michaela


If there was ever a more honest approach to a wedding day, and to a life-long relationship we’re sure this is it. Richard Grainger captured the day from start to finish, with a candid, all-together casual feel. Everything was organised through personal connections, from the childhood friend-turned florist sourced through a “pinky-promise” to the bar built by Michaela’s father. A barbecue breakfast for all, cricket and beers for the boys and last minute do-it-yourself decorating, bubbly and preparation by the ladies – it was ‘all hands in’ before the ceremony, indicative of the same approach to their relationship. With the ceremony at St Mary’s By The Sea and the reception at The Sugar Wharf, the Mediterranean style day was a casual and elegant, breezy collection of friends, family, good company and good food – reflective of a way of life that we hope the newlyweds are to enjoy for years to come.
